Sage The Super Q Blender Recipes

The Super Q Blender from Sage heralds the next generation of super blender. Packing a mighty smooth punch thanks to its powerful 2400W motor, it makes light work of blending even the toughest of ingredients. Under load the blade tip can reach speeds of 300km/h.

Five one-touch programs and 12 speed settings make it easy to create tasty and delicious soups, smoothies and frozen desserts.

With all that power you would expect the Sage Super Q Blender to be noisy. But thanks to noise suppression technology this isn't the case. Operating noise is reduced for a blend that is easier on the ears.

The Sage Super Q Blender is supplied with a personal blender cup. An additional blade system lets you mix directly into the personal blender cup for smoothies on the go. The intelligent base of the Super Q recognises if the personal blender cup is being used and optimises performance accordingly.

A one-touch auto clean function will clean the blades and jar - all you need to do is add the water and little detergent, the Super Q Blender does the hard bit for you! For your peace of mind the Super Q Blender is backed up with a Sage 10 year repair, replace or refund guarantee.

The following 15 tasty recipes are all quick and easy to make and show how versatile the Sage Super Q Blender is - from fresh and healthy smoothies and indulgent desserts through to tasty dips, sauces and hearty soups.
